Whether you’re ready for it or not, Autumn has arrived. As the days get shorter and the temperature more nippier, it’s time to get your house prepared for winter.
Here are some nifty tips from Mica Pinelands on things you should do in Autumn to help make your home ready for the colder months ahead.
Inspect your Roof
You’ll be very thankful if you catch a problem with your roof now before the water works starts in winter.

Saving Water begins at home
Install a rainwater harvesting tank to store water during the rainy winter months. Visit Mica Pinelands for our expert advice.
For those who have already installed water tank. Remember it is necessary to clean and disinfect your water tank at least once a year or more often, if required.
Clear out those Gutters
Remove leaves and other debris from your drainpipe and gutters to prevent clogging.
Raking those winter leaves
Raking leaves is like getting pet hair all over your new black jacket. First get a light rake with a long handle to avoid straining your back to lift it or bending over.
Remember to visit Mica Pinelands for all your quality garden tools.
Protect your outdoor furniture in winter
You’ve raked the leaves, inspected your roof and cleared the gutters. But what should you do with your outdoor furniture when winter comes?
Wooden garden furniture is normally treated with a preservative treatment. However, it’s important that you re-apply a preservative to ensure that the wood is fully protected. Depending on the condition and wood type this may need to be treated every 3 months, to once every 12 months.
